Manager, Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Arsenal will be without three first-team players when they face AC Milan in the Europa League at the San Siro stadium on Thursday night.
The three players, according to Wenger are: Hector Bellerin, Alexandre Lacazette and Nacho Monreal.
The Frenchman has been forced to leave the trio back in London rather than travelling with them to Italy for the game, as they look to overcome their respective problems.
Bellerin and Lacazette have been ruled out due to knee injuries, while Monreal is out with a back problem.
Wenger told reporters: “Bellerin is injured. He has an inflammation of his left knee.
“He had a scan yesterday which showed inflammation. He tried but couldn’t absorb the training session so we left him at home. It doesn’t look a long-term problem.
“Lacazette is still struggling, He is not ready.
“We had to leave Monreal behind as well because he’s not ready. “He started a little session today but he’s not ready.”
Meanwhile, striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is also unavailable due to being cup-tied, with Danny Welbeck likely to lead the attack line.
